Alabama assistant strength and conditioning coach Corey Harris has been fired for the loan he gave to star safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, according to a report via the Tuscaloosa News’ Aaron Suttles.

Harris was suspended indefinitely for the violation back in October after providing a short-term loan which amounted to under $500 to Clinton-Dix after his car was broken into in late June.  Clinton-Dix served a two-game suspension before returning to the team.

In an excerpt from the Tuscaloosa News report, an Alabama investigation led to the uncovering of deeper issues:

Upon investigating the matter at the time, the Alabama compliance office discovered that Harris had a connection to a representative of a sports agent. UA’s internal investigation has found no indication that Clinton-Dix has had contact with any agent or agent representative. Efforts to reach Harris were unsuccessful.

Clinton-Dix served a two-game suspension as a result before returning to the field.  The junior safety and projected 2014 NFL Draft first round pick currently ranks fourth on the team with 40 tackles and has a pair of interceptions on the season.
